Miss August

In the voice of three characters, Miss August tells the story of two friends growing up in Virginia during a time when Massive Resistance to integration causes public schools to close and private white-only academies to open. It’s a portrait of family and cultural dysfunction, and racism in a specific time and place in American history.
